On the Horizon

Down & Out Books continues seeking partnerships and opportunities for expansion. In 2016, ABC Group Documentation became its first imprint with a focus on fiction at the edge of the mainstream. In early 2017, Ron Earl Phillips’ Shotgun Honey publishing company officially became its second imprint. This summer will see the launch of Down & Out: The Magazine, a quarterly digest of crime fiction.

Here are some upcoming titles from Down & Out Books:
